Something to go to in Wellington

Andrew Brettell is a video dude who creates award-winning video projections for New Zealand theatre (most recently for the plays Democracy and Dr Buller’s Birds). This weekend, he's "haunting" the historic Futuna Chapel in Karori with video projections of ghosts and stories from its past as an awareness-raiser for the Friends of Futuna Charitable Trust.

When: Friday December 15th - Sunday December 17th, 10am - 10pm
Where: Futuna Chapel, 62 Friend Street, Karori
How much: Free!

There's also a talk at 20:30 each evening from Nick Blake on the architecture of the chapel.

I'm in Wellington this weekend for a civil union picnic (new institutions means new ways of celebrating), so I might just go along.

if you didn't attend this, you missed out.

it was very, very nice.

the ghost effects were kind of capturable on my phone, and i forwarded them to tom beard.

a good installation in a great location.

we simply can't afford to let the futuna disappear into a developers rubbish heap.

Indeed, I missed out. I did however experience Havana Bar (which sold a particularly nice absinthe, even if they didn't add quite enough water the second time).
